Why should former Chief Bennett be releived from the law suit. If he would have been doing his job as Chief he would have come out when he was called that evening. I was there I was standing there when the officer called him and told him what happened. Ehy didn't he come out and do a simple investigation on what happened. I know why the lazy ass just wanted to sit on his fat ass and have a affair with his girlfriend that his wife knows about and have his check mailed to him. Am I correct Russ and your mistress Nel

I agree with Village resident he should have been doing his job instead of having an affair with his employee. An investigation would have cleared him from any wrong doing. I do not believe officer Gibson was in the wrong for what he done but the Chief should have come out to the scene. Mr.Bennetts affair probably was why he never came out. His girlfriend is nothing but a crack whore everone knows that in Chesapeake and Proctorville. Thats the only reason she is screwing him to hide behind the law and not get caughtfor drugs. I was in his store the other day and she was all over him as well as he was all over her and his wife knows this and still lets her work there with him.

I can not see how Russell Bennett stayed Chief as long as he did. He is lazy I called his office several times and his brothers store and he would never return my phone calls. No he should not get out of this law suit if he would have been doing his job this probably would not have happened. I don't believe Officer Gibson done anything wrong from what I have heard of this situation. Now that I know he is having an affair with his whore/lisbian employee I can see why he never did his job as Chief. His wife is a sick woman if she knows about this and still married to him he is just a fat slob. Everyone stay away from this man you will catch a desease from him, his girlfriend is a skank and screws anything that walks. I've seen her at Champs with several other guys even an ex Chesapeake cop Noah now in Coal Grove. Tell'm Nelli

I personally have never liked Russ Bennett and never have heard a good word about him so I agree if he would have been doing his job the situation would by have been as bad or the problem may hve even been averted

I'm glad everyone's so quick to judge people and nose in other people's lives. Ya know, he has a family, grandkids and all, and how do you think they feel reading trash like this? Or do you not care to hurt childrens feelings? Yeah people make mistakes, and women stay in crazy situations that maybe people don't understand, but ya know what, you don't have to like it or understand it and you know why? cause it's not your life! He's a very nice person and yes he does care about his family. His wife is the sweetest person you could ever meet!And personnally they have been great to me. He may have made some bad decisions, but haven't we all? And most of you making these comments are probably hypocrits. If you don't like how someone lives their life then stop watching them live it.

FACTS!!!! Lawsuit is for the NEW Police Chief Dennis Gibson...Tazor a guy on a bike!? What a pussy...Since Russ has been gone look at cpeake! Every cop left when Russ did...why you think Dennis works so much! This is the first time I ever seen a help wanted sign at the cpeake police station! Dennis is scared of his own shadow! Cpeake is in a lawsuit b/c Dennis used a court issued tazor on a guy on a bicycle(who by the way rides with judge Capper)SMART! Cpeake is in such good shape...we are down to like 2 cops and one cruiser...was this really the change we needed! And do you think if Russ was cheating and his wife knew she would stay with him? And is this anyone's business? This sounds like Dennis Gibsons doings? how odd it's being said Russ cheated on his wife with Dennis's EX-Girlfriend! Let's work on a life shall we!

Hey Ignorant your the one that needs to work on a life. Your the one that brought this back up. What does it matter if he used a Court ordered taser or not he works for the Court House also stupid. And yes every cop has left which is a good thing they were lazy and stealing off Chesapeake not working and getting paid. One would not stay away from Sky Lake gambling,one would not leave the woman alone and the others tore the Village cruisers up all the time. So we as residents do not need them kind of cops. Yes Dennis works a lot at least we have a working Chief now. If Jimmie would have done this last election he would probably still be Mayor who knows. He must be liked by the people that matters in Lawrence County because he works at the Court House in Ironton, and Chesapeake Court for Capper as well as being a working Chief that we as residents respect. Law Suits mean nothing other than he is doing his job as an Officer of the law. He is doing a great job keeping drugs out of our Vilage with what he has to work with. So Ignorant move on were happy with our Chief. Talk NEGATIVE all you want we don't care were a step above you and registered to VOTE also.

No. Actually your wrong, people at the court house make fun of him. The reason everyone left is cause they can't stand him. And we are down a cruiser. Drugs are worse than ever.

Trueresident do you work there to hear people talk about him or is this just someting your making up, thats what it sounds like. And when a person has a position where they have to disicpline someone there not going to make friends. How many times has any Village been down to one car due to wrecking them or other problems sounds like you have a grudge against the Chief. It doesn't really matter because Trueresident and Residentthere are the same person talking out your butt because look at where the address comes from the same place Roanake Va. I know a little about a computer grow up get a life and quit sturring crap. I will pray for you tomorrow in Church that the Lord will let you get rid or your haitred because your going to your grave being a hater. May God Bless and look over you, your in my prayers. Chief if you read these negative comments I pray that you stay strong and don't let all this negativity get you down your doing a wonderfull job.

Every time I ever saw Russ in the cruiser, he was parked and sleeping! At least Dennis seems to stay busy attempting to do his job!

Now wait a min. Former resident, is it that he never worked or is it that he slept while parked. Sound like this is personal, since no one has posted here in almost a year.

I don't even really know the man, I just know that every time I ever saw him in a cruiser, he was asleep. I have nothing against him personally, because I do not know him. I recognize him when I see him, that's about it.
